When you decide you want to get a web host whether it’s a new web host you want to transfer your websites on or you just came into the internet game and you need a fresh start you are in for a tough choice. On the internet, there are always tons of choices you can choose from and usually many of them have different results and are offered at different prices. So, the question is how can you make the right choice for your business?
The thing is first you need to know what is it exactly that you need and then you need to dive into that side of the internet to dig up all the offers. After that you need to decide where you want to go with your content as it’s not just important to know what you want to do, but how you want to do it, and for how long. When it comes to picking a hosting package the basic choice you have to make is if you want to go with a Linux based web host or a Windows.
Choosing one over the other.
When you have the choice, you have to consider all the benefits of them both for your business. The truth of the matter is you don’t have to have a specific operating system to have your website hosted on one of them.
Picking one won’t be beneficial when it comes to compatibility. They are both compatible with a high rate and both function and can perform the same functions. The only difference is the preference that you have or the language that you know to use in one of these two operating systems.
Also, if you are wondering can you control the content on your cloud on both of these hosting systems the answer is yes. We used jdrop.org as Jdrop provides a place to store JSON data in the cloud. However, you can also use other sites if you choose so.
The real criteria when choosing which operating system to pick:
Choose Microsoft if you need more of Microsoft Access, ASP, .NET and last but not least Microsoft SQL Server. Some of these are available on the Linux and some or not what is important to understand is that some work better on the windows platform. It all depends on what you want to focus on and what you can trade for another version of it.
If you need more of Need Perl, PHP, Blogging Software, WordPress, MySQL than you might feel safer with the Linux. Again, same as above some of these works good on the Microsoft package but when it comes to problems and problem solving they are better handled on the Linux. Basically, you have to choose between your preference and the need of certain things that can be replaced.
We strongly suggest you take a good look and to consult with your partners if you have any as when you transfer to a new environment they also need to adjust their work to it.
